AsyncCallback Delegate

References a method to be called when a corresponding asynchronous operation completes.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[SerializableAttribute]
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)]
public delegate void AsyncCallback(
	IAsyncResult^ ar
)

Parameters

ar
Type: System::IAsyncResult

The result of the asynchronous operation.

Use an AsyncCallback delegate to process the results of an asynchronous operation in a separate thread. The AsyncCallback delegate represents a callback method that is called when the asynchronous operation completes. The callback method takes an IAsyncResult parameter, which is subsequently used to obtain the results of the asynchronous operation.

For more information about asynchronous programming, see Using an AsyncCallback Delegate to End an Asynchronous Operation and Using an AsyncCallback Delegate and State Object in Event-based Asynchronous Pattern (EAP).

The following code example demonstrates using asynchronous methods in the Dns class to retrieve Domain Name System (DNS) information for user-specified computers. This example creates an AsyncCallback delegate that references the ProcessDnsInformation method. This method is called once for each asynchronous request for DNS information.
